OK this will be another cluster fuck mother hunt but done in coco with auto feed. Over the next week I will be putting things together starting Sunday and buying the remaining items for the auto feed and auto drain system.

Will be using corrugated roofing panels, a gutter and a 2x3 frame with a condensate pump for a furnace to dispose of the runoff right down the drain.

Same sealed room same light for this grow and prob the last grow under it.

Strains will be Greenpoint Cake N Chem and Dragonflames blueberry dragon cheese. Will be popping these likely tomorrow or Sunday

Will get some pics up Sunday after there is something to show.

Nice, tuned in! Fwiw, personally if i were to do it over again, Id run my mother hunt in bigger pots or even in something with a bit more cec like proterra.
Im getting a fair bit of variation from seed that doesnt lend itself well to automated feeds in small pots, to say the least. Im only running clones with known structure and feeding habbits in this automated setup from here out.

That said, im really excited to see what you can do with this shit mang.

Ok so Sunday as promised pics. Well life fucked with everything so this is as far as i made it today. 2x3s for the frame cut. Corrugated roof panels cut. Condensate pump taken out of the box lol... yup thats it. Beans will see water as soon as the table is done and I just need to plumb the autofeed. Until then here is some pretty pics to look at lol.

I just cut down my last plants in Coco Aqua Man. Just as I think I figured out what was causing me so much trouble. With PPFD's up around 1700 the plants want so much mag and calcium I was really using a lot of cal mag. Well last week at the hydro store I found no "N" Cal Mag. Grow More makes the stuff.

I'm going to guess calcium carbonate? Mag sulfate?

Can you let me know the brand?

I'm kinda thinking it would need dosed a but higher than the cal and mag nitrate just because of the lower saturation point.

Lol are those 3x6'? That looks like the exact same roof panels i use. Awesome stuff, score it down the groove and bend to snap it into sections, or leave as is... And cheap.

Cut to 5.5ft long. Cut it with a skill saw, let's just say there is a better way lol. Still good though. They were 2x8
I'm going be using these corrugated panels in an upcoming build. So skill saw isn't the best option to cut these to size? Should I be scoring and snapping off, same way you would cut drywall?

Looking forward to updates!

I use tin snips or even bonsai shears to cut across the waves, any strong sharp scissor will cut the thin plastic. Honestly you could just use regular scissors if you have strong hands lol. And i score it with a knife and snap it by bending it to trim along the ridges.
